I am a pattern designer, my patterns are under the name of Cool Cat Creations. Yes, I do love cats and have 4 of them. I was always interested in quilting but drawing, painting and making clothing got in the way. I took a beginner course about 11 years ago, I had already studied tailoring and pattern drafting, then started teaching. I still teach quilting classes, love it. I started the pattern business about 3 years ago.
